The previous article – “What Are IoT Sensors?” – gave a high level overview of IoT system, now let’s drill down to what are IoT sensor devices.
- IoT sensors are necessary components of any IoT application
- Consist of sensors combined with communication capabilities
- Many different types of sensors exist
- Wireless communication is key to new applications
- Multiple wireless standards exist since no one size fits all
- Need a way to abstract application from sensing and communication methods
